When the movie has played all of its cards, it enters the make-or-break phase. Some of you may be wondering (quite rightly) why middle-aged uncles and aunties are being sent to confront deadly aliens. Others may be perplexed by the film’s time travel elements, which are explained in a brief sequence with a shrug.
The Tomorrow War, on the other hand, isn’t intended for those who ponder such concerns. You’re just supposed to go with the flow.
To help you feel better, the film includes a comedic relief audience surrogate character whose sole purpose is to predict what you’re thinking and make the same exclamations as you.
